    Hey y'all, I'm a non-car owner coming from Oakland/Berkeley. I'm wondering if there is anyone out there for whom a carpool would be convenient. Thanks!

      Hey Mina - I'm just logging on and seeing your message. I can't tell if you got bumped off the waiting list. If you are going and would still be able to carpool, that would be great!

      Actually Mina - Something came up and I need to cancel. Hopefully, freeing up my spot will get you on the hike!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
